Dr. Romy’s Most Popular Procedures 

Deep-Plane Facelift With Fat Grafting

The deep-plane facelift is a technique that repositions the muscle layer in a natural fashion, avoiding the too-tight look of older facelift techniques. Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer, is often combined with the deep-plane facelift to restore facial volume and create a more natural and youthful appearance.

High-Definition Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck with Dr. Romy is an outpatient surgery lasting 2-3 hours. It involves muscle tightening by securely pulling separated abdominal muscles together with sutures, trimming away loose skin and excess fat, and pulling the remaining skin smoothly to create a restored belly.

Post-Bariatric Body Contouring

Post-bariatric body contouring procedures are individualized by Dr. Romy to reduce excess skin and smooth the appearance after weight loss. These procedures are often planned serially to minimize the risk of complications.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is one of Dr. Romy’s most requested procedures. It involves adding volume and increasing the size of breasts with saline or silicone-gel breast implant devices to create a fuller or more proportionate appearance.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery involves removing excess breast tissue and skin using liposuction and excision through a small incision, followed by reshaping and repositioning the breasts for a more youthful and elevated appearance. The surgery typically takes two to three hours to perform.

Breast Lift

A breast lift is performed to address the loss of volume in the upper pole of the breast due to weight fluctuations, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or aging. Dr. Romy uses different techniques based on individual patient goals, and the surgery generally takes between 2-3 hours to complete.
